i just raced a i rock z, i believe v8. Off a red light, i just got into 1st gear fast, and went to 6k 1st and 2nd gear. He got a little bit infront at the launch, it was head to head all the way, he wont by id say a couple of inches. Afterwards, they where impressed with the wrx because at the next stoped they where said WOw that car is fast. i just smiled! If i had launched my wrx mabye, i would have taken them.
